Riverdale‘s last show of the season is set to be dramatic, especially after the Black Hood was revealed to have two identities and Fangs Fogarty (played by Drew Ray Tanner) was murdered in plain sight.
Now, creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa has hinted another character could be killed off the popular Netflix series in episode 22: Brave New World.
Roberto suggested Josie McCoy (Ashleigh Murray) was the next one to go in a cryptic post shared on Twitter.
In view of 111,000 followers, Roberto captioned a picture of Josie singing: “‘Oh, say, can you see…’ One more song from the glorious Ashleigh Murray on the Riverdale final.”
Fans were quick to assume Josie would die in the last episode, with many rushing to the comment section to share their theories.
One person wrote: “Wait… does this mean she dies,” while another added: “Roberto you’re going to kill Josie? You’re too crazy.”
A third said: “‘One more song’. That’s kinda ominous coming from you. Is she gonna die? Roberto you’ve got to stop screwing around.”
Someone else tweeted: “Why the pause at the end, what does that mean? You are too smart for that to mean nothing.”
